Are you visiting Udaipur? Remember

Do not forget to see rural arts, crafts, local culture, rural artists, hand woven clothes, embroideries, mirror works and handicrafts etc just 3 KM (1.9 ml) west of the city of Udaipur,India.

Shilpgram is a rural arts and crafts complex. Complex is spread over an undulating terrain of about 70 acres of land, surrounded by the Aravali Mountains. Shilpgram is an ethnographic museum that depicts the lifestyles of the folk and tribal people of the region. With an objective of increasing awareness and knowledge about the rural arts and crafts, the Shilpgram provides opportunity to rural and urban artists to come together and interact through the process of camps and workshops.

Each member state of the West Zone has traditional huts built within the Shilpgram, derivative of certain basic occupations fundamental to the way of life of the people of the area and also central to the culture of the country. In these traditional huts, household articles of everyday use, like terracotta, textile, wooden and metal items, decorative objects and implements are featured with appropriate signage and explanatory details with the objective to give a realistic glimpse of the people and their belongings.The huts are constructed around an interlocking occupational theme. In this integrated pattern are five huts from Rajasthan, representing the weavers’ community from Marwar, pottery from the hilly areas of Mewar and the tribal farmer communities of the Bhil and the Sehariyas .Apart from the state’s own representation, there are seven representative huts from the state of Gujarat, five from the state of Maharashtra and five featuring the arts and crafts of Goa.

The Shilpgram Festival is organised every year from 21 December to December 31.
